Well…it looks like I missed a week; so this is a double header!! Check out my Runners Gift Guide as well for some ideas for gifting your favorite runner (or just me…) this holiday season!
Weekly Workouts 11/7-11/13
Monday- no workout…I need to make a BIG change this month and make my Monday’s count!! Maybe next week…
Tuesday- We didn’t get in a morning run…but I had already planned on going to the group night run sponsored by our local running store – Manhattan Running Company! It was a lot of fun!
Wednesday- Just a great morning run 🙂
Thursday- Wow! Fall is in the air…and it feels like WINTER!
Brrrrr baby! It's cold outside! • The first freeze is always an interesting time! I need to come up with a organization list for cold morning runs…anything to get me out the door faster and prepared for the brisk temps! • Make today great! #brooksrunning #garminrocks #makeithappen #werunsocial @fitapproach @designerprotein #sweatpink #healthupyourholidays #RERmiles #irun4aidennicole
Friday- morning laziness won the battle – no yoga, no run – just work and driving
Saturday- A beautiful CRISP morning for a beautiful run! I paced the 2:55 group at the Longview Half Marathon in Missouri. I kept 4 runners with me or at least in my sights throughout the race. It was an exciting finish for everyone – I finished 2:54:53 (official time)
Another successful pacing experience!! Two races are never the same… • I kept my group of 5 (including me) together through mile 6, lost 2, kept 2 through 11 – one finished ahead, I finished – then I dropped my stick and went back out 3 times to bring in my gang!! • There were a couple out and back areas – on the last out and back, I shouted across the median that I was going to get them to the finish…I delivered!! • Make today great!! #makeithappen #brooksrunning #nuunlove #nuunhydration #keepittight #runmatchy™ #garminrocks #beatyesterday #bodyglide #roadid #momentum #makeithappenagain @designerprotein #HealthUpYourHolidays #sweatpink @fitapproach #designerprotein #irun4aidennicole
Sunday- no workout – recovery can be a “workout” I guess 🙂
Weekly Miles : 26.7 workout miles
This past week was just about moving… My running buddy and I are thinking about making routes that correlate for different days of the week 🙂 For example, Monday is the Aggieville loop, Tuesday is the King of the Hill day, Wednesday is the Snyder loop…etc. I am not sure if this will happen starting next week…but here’s to wishin’!
Weekly Workouts 11/14-11/20
Monday- If it wasn’t enough to run 5+ in the morning…I “got lost” on my lunch run… I wasn’t technically “lost” but I did take a new trail that I haven’t run before and it was longer than I expected…
Tuesday- Up and at’um!!
Wednesday- I missed my morning run…or we just decided to not run, whatever! Well, Mother Nature wasn’t happy about my decision and punished me for it… Hot hot HOT lunch run!
Thursday- a morning adventure with Angie 🙂 I think we both were tired…but it was too nice of a morning to pass up!!
No matter how tired I might have felt this morning, I knew I needed to get outside! • A 65 degree morning at the middle of November few and far between…I had to take advantage of it!! • Also, I didn't want to run in the seemingly record breaking 80+ degree afternoon heat… • This weather is so Kansas… • #oisellevolée #headupwingsout #zensah #brooksrunning #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #garminrocks #beatyesterday #werunsocial @designerprotein #HealthUpYourHolidays #sweatpink @fitapproach #designerprotein #zensah #irun4aidennicole
Friday- no workout
Saturday- no workout – unless playing with a little man or meal prepping counts 🙂
Sunday- no workout in sight…no morning run, the hubs left to watch the football game somewhere, kiddo napping…then b-day party plans this afternoon. Is this what taking a weekend off feels like? Oh well…
Weekly Miles : 25.5 workout miles
1586 / 2,016 miles in 2016
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
Well, my weekends of races and pacing events are over for a little while!
It is time to start thinking about the next training plan…what to train for specifically…how to cross train this time around…and a fueling plan!
How did your week go? Are you still training for a race this fall? Have you thought about your spring schedule?
